Talks between Sri Lankan government and Tamil party rescheduled for October 16

Oct 03, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s major Tamil political party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) sources say the next round of talks with the government on finding a political solution to the ethnic issue is scheduled for October 16.

The government postponed the next round of discussions scheduled for today since the members of the government delegation are involved in the local government elections scheduled for Saturday (08).

Representatives of the government and the TNA on September 16 resumed talks stalled for several months following pressure from the international community.

The current discussions between the two parties are based on the proposals handed in by the TNA, the proposals made by former President Chandrika Kumaratunga and the recommendations of the experts’ panel appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa in 2006.
